    Just remounting my ceramic coated header with a new gasket on a ktm 690e. Torque spec of 7.4 ftlbs is reached before the header flange bottoms out on the spacers so the spacers still move on the stud. I guess it’s possible that the ceramic coating added thickness to several surfaces that would increase that gap but not by this much. I checked the gasket and it is seated properly. Any advice?

    Thanks!
